Another Female Pop Star Halloween – 2012

I LOVE Halloween! And while I am sitting here waiting for the kiddos to come ring my door bell and shout “trick or treat,” I thought I’d tell you about my Halloweekend this year.

St. Patty’s Day 2012

How was your St. Patrick’s Day weekend? Admittedly, my weekend started out a bit German, rather than Irish. (And I possess heritage from both of these nations!). Metzger’s, an Ann Arbor German restaurant, was our Friday dinner destination. Metzger’s has a nice house salad, as I’ve mentioned before. For dinner, I departed from my usual … Continue reading

Happy Birthday Huz

Happy Birthday Huz

This past Tuesday it was the huz’s birthday! His pre-birthday weekend requests may have involved his favorite thing ever – fried chicken. Request obliged. Did you know we had fried chicken on our first date? Now you know. And some pie, whose picture turned out really freaky. Free pie, in fact, from Grand Traverse Pie … Continue reading
